OpenDSPd is daemon/service for controlled DSP environment on headless unix machines. This service core gives you a clean and simple interface to code your own headless MIDI/OSC responsive DSP box. Code your own opendsp app by glueing your prefered linux DSP apps on a integrated ecosystem that are able to:
- Route, exchange and control MIDI/OSC devices and it self.
- Automate user interface tasks to make your app ecosystem works like a real headless music or video standalone gear for professional usage on studio or live stage.
OpenDSP application is a sub-set of N applications with a predefined state relation between then called Mod.
A Mod can have any number of applications and audio/video connections between then as far as you processor can handle it all.
By merging different applications you can achieve different kinda of DSP tasks to use as a standalone dedicated audio/video gear in an automated way via MIDI and OSC protocols or via common mouse/keyboard and monitor desktop station.
You can write your own Mod with a very few lines of configuration, just check some examples at mod/ directory of user data partition.
Examples can be found inside data/ directory.
App main interface
By making use of Mod config files you can define your own with a few lines of configuration
On the above example you setup a standalone tracker with visualization responds to audio on your screen and a keyboard used as a midi controller to play some sunvox synthesizers.

Ecosystem DSP applications
You can create Mods ussing the following opensource applications ecosystem:
- modular synthesis
- modular programming
- audio plugins
410 audio plugins, from effects to classic synthesizer emulations
